Teasel

£3.00£5.70

Teasel is a statuesque flower and is a biennial, so it flowers in the second year. In the first year, the leaves form a bright green rosette.  Teasels do self seed readily however, so when planted in a group there should be some flowers produced each year. Alternatively cut the seed heads when dry and keep some seeds back to sow the following year! Teasels love sun and look super within grassland, within a cottage garden border or in a meadow. They attract so much wildlife they are perfect in any garden and would even look great in a container alongside other plants for pollinators.
Our 2020 plug plants are in their first year so will flower in 2021
